Posted · Add Comment

SIG members,

Here is the PDF of our symposium presentation on “Fail Again, Fail Better: Contextual factors that influence creativity in technology mediated learning contexts” from SITE 2014.

This symposium addresses issues of the kinds of technology-mediated contexts that support creativity. An additional theme is that of how the idea of failure can prompt the creative process. Presenters in this symposium described the theoretical, and pragmatic ways in which creativity can be supported and nurtured. A range of presenters spoke to multiple contexts such as, graduate level courses, digital fabrications, learning on the web, attentional failure, along with other issues, to build a richly nuanced perspective on creativity, failure, and the role of technology.
